Clinical Research Training Program (CRTP)

The Clinical Research Training Program (CRTP) is a one-year certificate program which focuses on core work in biostatistics and epidemiology, and which excludes the second-year research seminars and thesis required of our Master's students.

Potential applicants with the following backgrounds may find the CRTP to be an excellent option:

  • Clinical fellows with one year remaining at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS)
  • Recent college graduates interested in a career in science and/or health care
  • Postgraduate health care professionals in nursing or social work
  • Postdoctoral fellows already engaged in basic science research

The CRTP includes a core of 9 required graduate courses. Students typically take three courses per term (12 weeks per term), and finish the required courses within one year.
